Change the bar code type

If the default bar code type is not detecting your bar code in a consistent manner, you can change the bar code type so it looks for a specific type.

Tip If you do not know your bar code type, use the Auto detect mode.

You can change the bar code type for your Bar Code Locator by following these steps:

  1. Open the locator properties.
  2. On the General tab, clear the Auto detect option.

    The other bar code types are now available for selection.

  3. Select the bar code type to use.
  4. Optionally, modify the other bar code options such as orientation and length.
  5. Open a test document and click Test to test your settings.
  6. Optionally, click Close to close the locator properties window.
  7. Save the changes to your project.
